Vision and values

Elkem’s mission is to contribute to a sustainable future by providing advanced silicon and carbon solutions, creating value for our stakeholders globally. We believe that safe and eco-efficient production is the only way forward and that together we can develop solutions to many of the world’s challenges.

Innovation in Elkem

Future oriented and ambitious innovation strategy has been the foundation for Elkem’s development and success throughout more than 110 years. Ever since Sam Eyde established Elkem in 1904our core activity has been to develop new products, markets and production methods.

The future of Elkem is carbon-neutral

Elkem is among the world's cleanest metal manufacturers but still releases around 1.3 million tonnes of carbon emissions each year. This may now be coming to an end. According to the plan a research project will conclude with full scale production without net carbon emissions and without net supply of energy.

Our locations - plants and offices

Elkem has production plants and sales offices in over 40 different locations.
